There are Faeries in My Garden

This darling quilt was made by Brenda as a shop sample for the Southern California Quilt Run coming to the CraZy 9 Patch for the next 2 weekends. It will be mayhem. So many quilters will be looking for the right next project. I'm betting that Brenda's Christmas Faeries quilt will catch many eyes...and sell a bunch of fabric.

Brenda designed the quilt pattern herself and the patterns will be given out free at the quilt shop for those buying the fabric. I wanted to use some razzle-dazzle quilting on this beauty, so make the quilt will get the glamour treatment. SID, thin border baubles, lots of ribbons and bows and double-half-circles in the border. It will all eb done in gold So Fine thread and Quilter's Dream batting.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
